Coffee and Field Notes, or Field Notes and Coffee

It doesn’t take long once you start using Field Notes that you get sucked into the hard to find or limited edition versions. Enter the coffee versions. Up in Seattle you can get some packs there are only sold at the Starbucks Reserve Roastery. Luckily I have a friend that works nearby so I reached out him and these arrived in the mail last week!

The smaller books come in a three pack and have three different interiors. The most interesting part to me are the back covers. They have different regions where the coffee is grown along with some facts.

The larger books come in a two pack and have the same wood cover that the Cherry Graph notebooks have. I’ve never seen it before and it’s pretty interesting. It feels like a thin Balsa wood and reminds me of the small airplanes I used to play with. The insides of both books have the same interior, with different information on coffee.

I’ve started using one of the larger books to keep track of my coffee brews. It stays in the cabinet with my coffee making gear and will be used to keep track of the coffees that I like/dislike. It should take a really long time to fill it up. That probably doesn’t mean that more books won’t arrive though. Right?
